Neither the dippy, rustic Wild Life nor the slick AOR flourishes of Red Rose Speedway earned Paul McCartney much respect, so he made the self-consciously ambitious Band on the Run to rebuke his critics. On the surface, Band on the Run appears to be constructed as a song cycle in the vein of Abbey Road, but subsequent listens reveal that the only similarities the two albums share are simply superficial…
earMUSIC is delighted to announce the release of the brand new Marillion album ‘FEAR’ [‘Fuck Everyone And Run’] on 23 September 2016. The album will be available on SuperAudio-CD DigiPak [strictly limited to the first run], CD JewelCase, LP and Digital formats. This, the band’s eighteenth studio album, features 5 brand new tracks and the feeling within the band themselves is that they may well have produced their best ever work. Marillion has certainly not mellowed with age; the album artwork shows the acronym ‘FEAR’ embossed on a gold ingot, and the songs themselves bear the hallmark of true quality.
Already the debut album „On The Way To Sin City“ from 2013, also released through Pure Rock Records, showed up, that the Finnish Hard Rock Band Guns Of Glory are hungry newcomers, who internalised the spirit of acts such as Nashville Pussy, AC/DC, Krokus and Rose Tattoo. Now the four Scandinavian guys are proud to present their second work (album 2016) and prove that traditional, asskickin‘ Rock’n’Roll didn’t lose anything of its elemental force. With a drunken, smoky voice, bluesy, yet rockin‘ guitars and an always youthful dash, they are rockin‘ through twelve mostly solid and short tunes, that the sweat is dripping from the roof. That’s Rock’n’Roll, baby!
A rookie flyer, Ens. Alan Drake, joins the famous Hellcats Squadron right out of flight school in Pensacola. He doesn't make a great first impression when he is forced to ditch his airplane and parachute to safety when he arrives at the base but is unable to land due to heavy fog. On his first official outing, his poor shooting skills results in the Hellcats losing an air combat competition. His fellow pilots accept him anyway but they think he's crossed the line when they erroneously conclude that while their CO Billy Gray is away, Drake has an affair with his wife Lorna. Drake is now an outcast and is prepared to resign from the Navy but his extreme heroism in saving Billy Gray's life turns things around.
